YOU DON’T LOOK SICK!!! YOU DON’T LOOK DISABLED!!!

Hi I’m Dave!

How many people have heard this in their lives. Or my fav, “oh come on, it can’t be THAT bad”.  It’s a shame that we live in a society that is so ignorant and indifferent to others.  I know way too many people in my life that suffer on a daily and hourly basis of some sort of illness. Everthing from Epilepsy, Chronic Pain, Fibromyagia, Vulvadynia, IBS, Chronic back pain, and the list goes on.

Hmmm now looking at that list not one them presents themselves on the surface as to say HEY! I’M SICK/DISABLED/HURTING.  But all of the people I know that have things like those above are suffering on the inside 24/7 in most cases. Even with strong meds to help “control” it usually is not enough to give people total control over their own lives without some sort of consequence at the end of the day.

I personally do not suffer from anything like those, but what I do suffer with is a broken heart knowing that there is nothing I can do to make them feel better, or take away their pain and hurt. The only thing you can do is be the truest of true friends you can, and give them a shoulder when they need it most.

Don’t get me wrong! I’m not saying throw a pity party, I’m saying if you’re going to be a friend be a true friend.

    Hmm, a brief post but meaningful and profound. Life is naturally unfair with everyone, so we just need to live our lives in the way that we don’t feel ashamed with us and with all people. But if we have a better living condition, let give a hand to others. Even that we can only do is just being a true friend, a moral support of them :)
